Arjuna Natural Extracts X-tend natural preservative

Monday, 13 February, 2017 | Supplied by: Arjuna Natural Extracts Ltd



Arjuna Natural Extracts has developed X-tend, a natural, formulation-specific preservative designed to increase chilled-meat product shelf life and ensure food safety.

The formulation can replace chemical nitrosomyoglobin-forming preservatives and is non-carcinogenic and safe to use in chilled meat. It is potent and prevents the growth of yeast and mould in chilled meat products.

The biggest challenge in replacing synthetic preservatives involves flavour masking (blocking unwanted or undesired flavours) while creating the correct functional mix of natural ingredients to combat a range of microbial activities. The formulation provides a natural solution for a variety of problems typically encountered in chilled meat products, such as microbial spoilage, oxidative rancidity, short shelf life, off colour and altered flavour. It retains natural colour and freshness and extends chilled meat shelf life by up to 15 days, according to the company.

The preservative is available in both liquid and powder forms.
